|Shawn Roberts, Lead Pastor|
My name is Shawn Charles Roberts. I was born in Windsor Ontario Canada, on September 15, 1966 to Jack and Lynn Roberts. I grew up in a hockey crazed family, where hockey was a way of life. Both my parents came to faith in Christ while I was still pretty young (my dad when I was only 5 and my mom a few years later when I was 9). I lived a pretty crazy out of control life as a teenager. During this time I started dating my now wife, Beth Dalke, in December of 1983. We were high school sweet hearts. Two years later while attending a Christian youth retreat both Beth Anne and I gave our lives to Jesus Christ (November 21, 1985).
We were married on October 3, 1987, and went to Bible College in 1989. I graduated in the spring of 1993 with a degree in theology.
Prior to coming to minister at The Father's House, I have spent 25 years in some phase of student ministry (young adults, college, high school and middle school), all across Canada and the United States. For the past 5 plus years I have been on staff at New Life Foursquare Church in Everett, Washington. As the Associate Pastor of Student Ministries I have had the privilege of overseeing all aspects of student's ministry from 11-30. This past year I have been focusing primarily on middle school ministries but was responsible for starting New Life's Internship Program, while overseeing all other departments within the student ministry world.
I have worked as a personal trainer at Gold's Gym here in Granite Falls for a few years and love sports. I have been a coach in the community for the past 9 plus years and I am heavily invested in the community. I love this town!!!
My wife and I have 5 amazing kids, Michael, Eliza, Alannah, Seth, and Brandyn.
It is my privilege to come and serve with you as we continue to reach all of Granite Falls and the surrounding area for Jesus Christ.
